In this documentary feature, Black Panther activist Eldridge Cleaver and his wife are interviewed by William Klein. Cleaver speaks from exile in Algeria, a move prompted by the state of California's decision to view criminal indictment as a parole violation. The articulate Eldridge talks openly about revolution in the United States and lists his arch rival political enemies. The names of Nixon, Agnew, McClelland are verbally sullied along with Ronald Reagan and Richard Daley. All are considered as bullet fodder for a number of revolutionary groups throughout the United States. Cleaver was not convicted of a crime, but the California decision forced him into exile.
